The Great Outdoors

In the southern Pocono foothills, Beltzville State Park is well worth a visit when you rent a camper near Lizard Creek Campground. Just five miles' drive from Lehighton, the 3,000-acre park is a popular destination to relax and cool off thanks to its large sandy beach and a 949-acre lake. Aside from swimming, boating, and fishing, the park is also a great place to go for a hike with 15 miles of trails. Take the Saw Mill Trail for a hike steeped in history, passing by a slate quarry from the 1700s, a dam and gateways, as well as various ponds. Mountain biking is allowed on the 2.5-mile Christman Trail. For picnics, stop by at the Pine Run West Day Use Area where you can park and make use of the various picnic tables and pavilions with access to drinking water. There are also restrooms and a children's playground.Another must-visit park when you're RV camping at Lizard Creek Campground is Lehigh Gorge State Park, with its Jim Thorpe entrance around 20 minutes' drive away. The park features a narrow, high-walled gorge carved out by the Lehigh River. With its rocky outcrops, dense vegetation, and waterfalls, the park is a great place to get away from it all. An extremely popular destination for whitewater rafting, you can also hike or bike along the Lehigh Gorge Trail. The trail is based on an abandoned railroad alongside the river with some spectacular views, including the historical remnants of the Upper Grand Section of the Lehigh Canal. Turn Hole Tunnel, an abandoned railroad tunnel now open to the public, is also worth a visit, as are the spectacular Buttermilk and Glen Onoko Waterfalls.Just a little over 30 minutes' drive from the campground brings you to Tuscarora State Park, home to the 96-acre Tuscarora Lake. With its sandy swimming beach, picnic area, and seasonal food concessions, the park is a popular place for family days out and relaxation. The lake is also a great spot for fishing, complete with its fishing pier and boat launch. Boat rentals are available seasonally, including rowboats, canoes, and pedal boats. Tuscarora Park features several trails of varying difficulty, from easy strolls along old logging roads to the more challenging Locust Mountain Trail that takes you up to the top of Locust Mountain. For spectacular views of the lake, be sure to take the short Lake View Trail. The park's huge diversity of trees also makes it a good place to go wildlife spotting, with deer, bear, turkey, and grouse often sighted. You can learn all about the local plant and wildlife at the park's Nature Center.

Exploring the Area

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
